Sponge/foam/ filter fiber from the local pet store and put it in the intake or output, or putting decorations around it to slow it down. To better assist you can you post a link to the type of filter you have?

For that type of filter I would cut a piece of filter foam or a sponge and put it in front of the filter. It will slow down how fast the water enters the tank. You can also put a piece at the bottom of the filter to slow down the suction of the water.

I used a rubberband to keep the air hose bent and adjusted the bend (basically making a bigger loop) until i got the right amount of air to still be able to push enough water up the filter. My fish couldn't be happier. He can go wherever he pleases without being pushed around by the current.
